I'm old and I get a kick out of people that say they forgot something that was "on the tip of their tongue" so they must be a sign of old age.

I tell them that forgetting things is not a sign of old age, it's a sign that you have many other things more important to think about.

I also mention that I, for most of my life, I have been very forgetful. Since I have always been forgetful, it cannot be a sign of Alzheimer's or age, just preoccupation.

A real senior moment is when you forget you have a bed date with a 20 year old. It sometimes is also called "fortuitous amnesia".
